for joining us this hour. ought to be more exciting than usual. let's see. president obama's state of the union address last night lasted almost exactly 60 minutes, with not quite 7,000 words. it was a little longer than average in terms of word count. the speech was interrupted 83 times for applause, according to a tally by the national journal. there was no notable disruption in the audience this year, no moment like a republican congressman yelling "you lie" the way congressman joe wilson did during the joint address to congress back in 2009 there was no moment like a supreme court justice muttering a rebuttal to the president from the rows up front the way justice samuel alito did in 2010. there was one moment of the speech, though, last night where you heard something from the room. you heard a gasp from the room in response to something that the president said. >> we should follow the example of the north miami woman named desiline victor. when desiline arrived at her polling place, she was told the wait to vote might be six hours. as time ticked by, her concern was not with
is getting as wide as the grand canyon. watch how they do it. president obama wants to keep the government going. pretty simple, huh? republicans threaten to stop it. it's relentless, the fiscal abyss, the debt ceiling. different words, different deadlines all detonate the same explosion. they threaten to crash the government if they don't like the way it's doing something. if they don't like who the american people have elected as republican. isn't what the republicans did in the old days? if they didn't like a government somewhere, guatemala, iran, chile, they just brought it down. guess what? republicans are now using the same tactic here at home. if they don't like who we have elected as president, they find some way to undermine the president. whatever it takes to destroy it. we are using in this country the same old cold war cia tactics to destabilize our own country. look at the impact this constant threats to shut down the government have been having on public confidence. it's all in the ratings. it's undermining it, making people forever nervous about the basic ability of america

obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term? listen to those attacking senator hagel, and you hear the yelps of pain this motley crew of neocons and right-wingers from the sun belt feel even though from the american people's choice of last november. what they hate, despise really, is the fact now in the history books that the american people in great numbers reject their war-like jingoistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is not with obama's choice for a cabinet appointment. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president, who it wants deciding what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a day. and thanks for being with us tonight.

right now is president obama is insisting upon tax increases as part of the sequester agreement and you know how republicans view that. he is trying to get them to agree to two in a formal period and challenging thing for them to accept. at the same time, the president is urging and saying this affects the broader economy and the republicans acknowledge that but are not ready to go back to the negotiating table right now. >> ken, i guess the other point here is that, you know, if the sequester happens and, for example, in "the washington times" today, they talked about the ripple effect on defense contractors and the thousands of jobs that they are preparing to have layoffs for because of the threat of sequester. i mean, who gets the blame if the economy starts to tank? >> right. well, congress gets the blame more generally and that is what i think is sort of lost here in the jockeying, the positioning and pointing fingers at both sides. we already see historic negative approval ratings for congress. it's only going to get down to both parties detriment. however, i do think the presiden

, is it time for a breakup? >>> president obama's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel has the 51 votes needed in the senate for confirmation. today he actually needed 60 to control republican procedural hurdle that would allow the vote on his nomination to actually take place. he got 58 votes. hagel came up two votes short of what he needed. today he will eventually have those votes. that's for sure. >> we can get this issue resolved on the day that we return from the recess. certainly there is, i believe, sufficient votes to invoke cloture at that time. >> when we get back, unless there's a real bombshell, i vote for cloture and move on to his nomination. >> that's right. senators john mccain and lindsey graham will vote to end debate on the confirmation of chuck hagel, eventually, but today, they just didn't feel like it. they towed the party line and voted to block hagel's nomination. the procedural vote failed 40-58 with one senator voting present and one senator not voting. 54 democrats voted in favor as did four republicans. no cabinet member nominated for a national security pos

out today, ambitious state of the union speech. patricia murphy, is the re-elected barack obama perhaps overreaching? >> well, you know, i think it obviously depends where you're coming from. if you look at what he was talking about, these are a series of smaller initiatives, universal pre-k, the -- talking about the minimum wage. these are things that are actually relatively targeted, relatively narrow. i think some of his more liberal counterparts would like to see him go bigger and bolder. i don't think it was an overreach. i do think it doesn't quite add up. there is no money left in the federal budget for the new initiatives. that's where his new problem was with his speech. >> he says won't raise the deficit. amy holmes, some say ambitious. you say -- >> i agree with patricia. last night's state of the union was surprisingly modest. it was part george jetson, this vision of the future where our cars don't run on gas anymore, but he didn't have any specific proposal on how to accomplish that, other than we'll study it. he talked about an energy security trust led up by ceos
